Ants in the yard:
I just read this in a magazine and we have to try it.
For fire ants, take a shovelfull of dirt (and ants) from one ant hill and put it on top of another ant hill. The ants will disappear, so it says.
If anyone tries this and it works, let me know! I am going to try it too.
Sounds too easy but hey, it was published somewhere! LOL!

Chalk works. Just regular ol' chalkboard chalk. Just draw a line around where they are coming in and they will not cross it. A friend discovered this by using it on a socket they were coming in around and she just drew a heavy chalk line around the outlet and they stopped coming in. Good luck!!

Cinnamon works at my house. I put it anywhere they enter the house or a room, and it holds them off for as long as the cinnamon stays there. I reapply near the front door every few weeks or so. It's quite effective.
